We’re interactive. We’re community-driven.

How Does a Mentor Strengthen the Community?
The goal of the library is to provide a space to bring the people its serves together through learning, be it through books and resources, programming, or one another. Mentors, in wanting to share their talents and knowledge, enable other community members to grow as learners and as people.

Who Can be a Mentor?
To maximize The SPARK potential, we’re looking for local mentors who are students, specialists, or hobbyists who want to share their expertise or love of a hobby with students and/or adults through interactive programming.
